Join us for an evening of fun and creativity at Heirloom Rustic Ales! We’ll bring all of the supplies for you to work on your own blackout poetry; a judge will choose their 3 favorites, and ask the writers of the winning three to read them aloud. The winners will receive some great prizes, including a gift card from Whitty Books.
What is blackout poetry?
Blackout poetry is when you use an existing page from a book and blackout all but the words you want to use to create your own story or poem. It is a great way to get past the intimidation of the blank page, to try your hand at writing poetry for the first time, or get past a bout of writer’s block.
